Ten Questions Parents Ask Brochure
This colorful, four-panel brochure treats 10 questions, giving accurate answers to things parents commonly ask about vocations to religious life. Sold in packages of 100, this brochure is affordable as a giveaway in parish bulletins, vocation fairs, and large events. It answers the following: Are people entering religious life? Why are there so many different religious orders? Isn’t religious life lonely, especially with so many elderly members? How often will my son or daughter be home for the holidays and family events? Will my daughter or son use their education and talents as a sister, brother, or priest? Can’t my child be of service to the church as a volunteer or associate? Is taking vows and belonging to a religious community necessary? How restrictive are the vows? With the demands of ministry, how do religious communities face stress and avoid burn out? How long does it take to become a religious sister, brother, or priest? Can people change their minds? I support my child’s vocation, but my spouse doesn’t. What should I do? If you desire bulk orders of 10 packets or more, please email nrvc@nrvc.net for further discounts.
